Hello there. I could be of help - I'm not a terribly fast 3x3 solver but my best average of 12 is 14.78.... With CF! How do you solve edges? I don't do waterman - but basically an optimized version of Ortega.
Chris, if I actually use these algorithms, I'd like to have #4, with all solid colors on the top, meaning none of the cubies should be greyed out. Of course permutation arrows would be fun, but I actually think that many recognize patterns by blocks and not permutations per se. :)
Best Average of 12: 1:28.34
Best Time: 1:21.08
Worst Time: 2:38.99
1:22.67, (2:38.99), 1:25.11, 1:21.74, 1:22.38, 1:31.98, 1:33.55, 1:42.03, 1:23.74, (1:21.08), 1:31.58, 1:28.65
Everyone's super fast these days, it's hard to catch up...
But 5x5 with sandwich is love...
guysensei1: socks high pants high NUS high ;)
TMOY: I actually worked on old ideas last summer and learned a few neat new tricks and more algorithms to increase efficiency of solves :) which was how I cut my global average for 5x5 by 20-25s or so! My global average should be...
video as requested by qqwref!
haven't been cubing properly for ages, and its nice to get down to the low 1:30s on average, especially on video!
this happens to be my pb average too.
Best Average of 12: 1:33.42
Best Time: 1:27.61
Worst Time: 1:39.15
That is entirely true, too; but there are so many fun cases I've got here =P I was working on learning full 1-look midges but I abandoned it because I couldn't find a good recognition system.
Kirjava, if you ever see this: surely you know most cases of last redge+orienting midges?
I am preparing a comprehensive sandwich guide (for my own pleasure mostly) - and I am releasing what could be useful to Roux 3x3 users.
I have included cases I know of 1-look midges (ledge+redge skip?), as well as orienting midges + inserting Redge if Ledge is skipped (hence, L5E)...
Hello world. I have been dormant for years now; basically being conscripted out of high school wasn't fun… and school of course soon right after ;p
I am a rising Junior @ IU.
For those who don't know me: I use sammich. For all cubes. 4x4 was my specialty! I do not use CFOP for 3x3 because...
not actively. I'm cubing on and off, when I feel like I need a break. Recently, I've been working on corners first for 3x3, and have been consistently sub 20. But what is sub 20 nowadays T_T
I'll need to wait for a better 4x4 to come out before I start trying to break the 45s average barrier lol
cool, so you're my junior. i'm from the class of 2011.
and to reply one of the posts up there - I was part of the old type C/D generation. We have mostly retired from the scene…
Just happened to see this because I just got a little bored and decided to visit this forum again after quite...
the last time i was speedsolving the 5x5...it was basically, as somerandomkidmike has mentioned, my 3x3+4x4 method. first 2 centers, corners, finish tredges on yellow and white, 4x4 midges, 3x3 midges, last 4 centers.
back to topic, maybe I should revive one method I tried to develop...slightly...
